French registration papers

Iconic model of the marque
Good overall condition
Competition equipment

The archetypal Italian sports car of the 1960s, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT – also known as the ’Bertone coupé’ – owes its elegant, well-proportioned lines to a young designer then aged only 22, Giorgetto Giugiaro, whose career was just beginning. Its all-aluminium, 1570cc 4-cylinder engine was fitted with twin overhead camshafts and developed 106bhp, thanks to its two twin-barrel carburettors. Its power was transmitted by a five-speed gearbox, which was quick and precise, while braking was taken care of by discs all-round. The car proved so successful that it was built until 1976, with a range of models offered, of which the most famous remain the GTA and GTAm versions for competition.
The car we are offering for sale itself took part in several historic motorsport events, including the ‘Critérium des Cévennes’ in 2000 and 2001, as can be seen from the photographs in its history file and the special equipment fitted to it, which includes a roll cage, racing harnesses, fire extinguisher, sump guard, additional spot lamps and alloy wheels. It was first registered on 20 May 1965 by the ‘Société Française Alfa Romeo’ in the eighth arrondissement of Paris. Unfortunately, we have no history for the car before 16 January 1993, when it changed hands; it was then kept by the same owner until it was sold at auction on 11 February 2017. The logbook listing all the work carried out, as well as the modifications and improvements made since 1993, show that its previous owner had the clutch changed at that time, as well as carrying out extensive work on the body, including the replacement of the sills and a complete repaint. In 1994, the engine was also completely overhauled with a new block to the original specification. The documents at our disposal indicate that the car has since covered about 60,000km (37,000 miles) and has been very regularly maintained. The car will be sold with its original wheels and bumpers. Finished in its original red paintwork, with matching leatherette seats, this Bertone coupé is the ideal efficient and powerful plaything, for a historic rally enthusiast.
